Save User Data

I have a problem when saving user data with StarCD 3.26.

I defined a cell set containing 10800 cells (that's what it is found using the Cell List or Cell Check commands in the Cell Tool utility). If I try to save to file data for this cell set (using Post > Save User Data), the resulting file contains only 10752 cells!

Where are the other 48 gone? Where could the problem be?

Thank you very much in advance,

check to see if any cells in that cset are not fluid (ie baffles, shells, or solid cells). It won't write data for those.

Re: Save User Data
Thank you for your reply.

However, I defined the cell set using the command 'cset' (cset news type table#), and I loaded only one fluid cell table. Also the command 'count cells' confirms that there are 10800 fluid cells in the set, but in the file I get only 10752 cells... I still don't understand this.

Thanks a lot anyway.

Re: Save User Data
Thank you, Nahum.

I tried this with no success. I tried to close all files (but then I must reopen the pst file) and to close the usr file, but the issue still happens (even if the generation of the user data file is the first thing I do after opening the mdl file and loading the pst file).

I will keep on looking for the origin of this problem. Thank you anyway for your support,

Re: Save User Data
Hi, I have found that the number of cells saved in the file is always a multiple of 256: it is the largest multiple of 256 lower than the number of cells in the set.

Any clue?
